Fenix BC21R - 880 lumens - CREE XM-L2 T6 LED - 18650 x1
Rechargeable, with the included 18650 able to be taken out for on the go changes, the BC21R is a bike light that you'll find has a few features many others will be envious of. That means other riders and their own lights. To start, the two red bits up front? Those are red LEDs which don't interfere with your ride, but do alert people coming up to you that you're about to meet. If they haven't seen any of the other methods of alerting the world to your presence you employ beforehand.
The BC21R uses an XM-L2 T6 LED for forward illumination. The lens is changed to allow for a new version of the Dual Distance Beam System, shooting out light to 125 meters. The red LEDs stay steady while the light is in a stable mode, and flicker themselves while in Flash mode. Machined from aluminum alloy, it is able to survive impacts from 1 meter up with minimal damage. However, as the mount is tight and won't move without your assistance, or even let the BC21R slide off slowly, you won't have to worry about falls unless deliberately tested.
There is a small black separater inside the BC21R, near the front and behind the LED on the battery's positive side. Take this out after it arrives, or the light will just be a paperweight at best.
